Crazy Day Off (am I a Soccer Mom?!?)

My day off just started weird. I finally had everything set up to take my car into the body shop for repairs, so I headed there first. I waited quite awhile for the Enterprise people to show up, which frustrated me greatly. When I arrived to get my rental car, they handed me keys to a black Dodge Grand Caravan minivan! What in the world?!? That's all they had left. They stated that the ice storm last week caused so many wrecks that there is now a rental car shortage! I never realized how long a minivan is until getting to drive one today!

After picking up my Soccer Mom mobile (please don't be offended if you have a just isn't my ideal rental car), I headed off to Northeast Mall. I have been on a hot pursuit for cruise clothes, so shopping is my new hobby. I had a little bit of luck finding some fun clothes. I also needed some more foundation so I headed to the Clinique counter in Dillards. The makeup associated lured me into purchasing more makeup by asking me if I wanted to try a new eye color. I stated that I was looking for a fun new eye color, so I sat down for her to CHANGE my face. She went very dramatic with my eye and lip colors. I felt VERY made up and kept thinking that people were staring at me as I walked through the mall.

I then headed off to Sam's as I needed to get some food items for a bridal shower that I am helping with. My parents gave me Sam's Club membership gift certificate for Christmas, so I had to get my picture taken for my membership card. I was chuckling to myself that I got my makeup done just for my Sam's Club card picture. I look great on the card! I must say that it was nice to load all of my Sam's goodies into a roomy minivan. I felt like I needed to then rush off and pick up my 2 kids at soccer practice.

I used to drive the 12th Man Foundation mini-van when I ran errands, and I have to say, I kinda enjoyed it. :)

I can't wait to see that Sam's card!!!

Hey, I'm a mini van driver for years now and I won't be suprised if you want one. They are just so handy. Esp. for me with VBS, Dales now defunct business and grandkids. I don't know what I'd do w/o it. I moved practically every thing in our last house to this one, in the mini van with all but one seat out of it for Jacob, my little buddy. After that, I went and bought one that the seats just fold down into the floor. I want to see that card, too.
